First check to see if battery fully charged and if it isn't put it on a charger and if the truck takes a jump and you can get it running while it is running take the positive side of the battery cable off and if it dies then it could be the alternator if it doesn't die then it could be the drive belt because if the belt is slipping that will also cause the battery to loose charge and the truck will not start

SOURCE: check gauges light on 06 f150

Is your battery good? if the check gauges light is on it could be , oil pressure, temperature, or voltage. It sounds like a newer vehicle so I would start by trying another battery or jumper cables.

Mazda 6 abs light on, temperature gauge goes up, hard shifting ATX

Sounds like more than one problem.
The ABS light is on to tell you the abs system is disabled due to a problem. Same goes for the traction control which could be related to the abs system problem. Both systems have to work together.
The temp gauge issue could be a faulty thermostat or the cooling system could be low on anti-freeze.
The shifting problem could be related to either system.

Honda 2004 civic turns over but wont start. starter fluid gets it going but doesnt stay cranked.. help

Hi Tara,
I would crack the fuel line at the fuel rail and crank the engine, if you have fuel, you know the pump is working. If you have no fuel, check for power at the fuel pump. If there is power at the pump, you will probably need a fuel pump. Let me know if that helps, thanks.

Starter won't engage heat gauge goes across to hot when trying to start truck. What causes this?

Voltage drop? I'm guessing you don't have a voltmeter, so turn on the headlights and observe them as someone tries to start the truck. If the lights go out, bad connection at battery, starter, or ground. If the lights get dim, probably the starter-it's drawing power, just not working. If the lights don't change, check for power going to the starter solenoid on the small wire on the starter; voltmeter or test light, check if the small wire to the solenoid has power when key is held in start position-in crank position. There should be battery voltage there when the key is turned to crank. If so, the starter or solenoid is bad. If no power there to solenoid, power is lost somewhere between ignition switch and the starter wire.

I start my car and everything sounds like normal, like its going to start but it doesnt start. the gas light is still on but have put gas in it already about 5-8 gallons worth. when i drove it yesterday...

You may need a mechanic for this.
If the engine cranks the starter and battery are ok.
It if cranks but does not start, you would need to know if you have spark to the plugs, fuel to the injectors and normal compression.
To answer your other question, you would remove the spark plugs and use a gauge to check compression.

If my gas gauge doesnt work can it just be a fuse

Doubt it.
The same fuse for the gauge would handle the rest of the cluster.
Probably the sending unit in the tank.

How does the temp gauge work on these cars

with my 2000 echo when you start it a blue temp gauge looking like a thermometer shows when car warms up it goes out indicating it is warmed up....If the red one comes on after driving for a while it is telling you car is overheating very simple but very effective once you know this

1989 mazda 626 turbo window washer pumps

well the pump for the washer solvent is probably fried (unless there is no solvent in the resovoir). and on the gas gauge the way that works is there is a little float handle that goes up and down with the gas. when you put gas in this little float floats on top of the gas and this is how your car knows how much gas you have it sounds like it is getting stuck and will probably need to be replaced
